I've just got a quick question about a miniseries I am trying to get XBMC to scrape correctly. The series is "Answered By Fire", which was aired in Australian on ABC in 2006. Info can be found at IMDB. It has two parts, each around 1.5 hrs in length.
Basically, I can't get XBMC to recognise it as a TV Show (using the TVDB scraper). I can get it to recognise as a movie (using the IMDB scraper), but this method does not allow the two parts to be recognised as seperate "episodes" (it effectively merges the two into one long "movie").
So, in your humble opinions, is this miniseries a movie or a TV Show? and how can I get it to scrape properly?
Many thanks in advance
Miniseries - TV or Movie??

TV show, why not just add the content to thetvdb? Only takes a few minutes.

I run XBMC on a selection of ION based xbmc appliances and a atv, all being feed by a opensolaris based NAS using zfs (8*1.5tb, 8 *1tb, 4*400gb).

Best bet is the create an account on thetvdb.com and add the series information. Then it will be available to everyone in the future.
Edit: prae5 got it in before me.. :-)

Just keep in mind we do not allow tv movies that aired all at once.
But anything with 2 or more parts is fine. ^_^
